General Dietary Concerns:
1) Dementia patients need to eat well balanced meals at least 3x's a day.

2) Blood work, stool samples, urine tests and hair tests should be preformed upon diagnosis to determine if the patient is lacking any vital minerals or vitamins. These tests should be repeated periodically as the patients conditions change.

3) Be sure that the patient has adequate amounts of fluids through out the day. Fever, flushing, rapid pulse, pale lining of mouth, inelastic skin, dizziness, headaches, and hallucination are symptoms that should be watched for.

4) Maintain proper dental hygiene. With dementia, patients often times they forget to keep up on dental maintenance. This could lead to eating disorders in the future.

5) Make sure that the patient is experiencing normal bowel activity. This is vital to especially if any type of detoxification program is being implemented.
